13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
kayakers and cliff
During a hike to the viewpoint of Shark Hole on the island of San Sebastian, I photographed these two kayakers awaiting the best time to approach the famed Grotto of the Oratory.
This Island is located in the Archipelago of Ilhabela, which is considered the island territory with the largest wrecks index of Brazil.
The economy of this archipelago revolves around tourism and ecotourism, and still keeps some of its most striking traditions, caiçara way of life (men living from fishing). The Sao Sebastiao Island, the largest and most inhabited, has its preserved forest and hundreds of different species, including birds and mammals.
